LAS CRUCES - After several years of planning and construction, the Courtyard by Marriott Las Cruces hotel is scheduled to open Friday, July 5.
Located at 456 E. University Ave., just west of the Las Cruces Convention Center and New Mexico State University, the 126-room hotel will operate as a Marriott franchise, developed by a partnership between Allen Sigmon Real Estate Group and Total Management Systems both of Albuquerque, and managed by Total Management Systems.
The four-story hotel features an outdoor swimming pool, a business library with computer stations, a fitness center and guest laundry, 675 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 72 people, and The Market, a 24/7 shop for snacks and beverages.
“The latest room design offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready,” according to a news release. “The hotel features artwork and a color palette – Aggie Crimson, that is motivated by New Mexico State University.”
“From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to business travelers,” said Janis Milham, senior vice president and global brand leader, Classic Select Brands, in the release. “Today’s technology has changed how people travel. Our guests want a room that has purpose and flexibility that enables a seamless transition between relaxing and working. Courtyard is designed to offer them a relaxing and functional space to work the way they want to, when they want to.”
According to the release, “Each room provides modern furnishings and amenities, plush bedding topped with crisp linens, a light desk on wheels with an ergonomic chair, complimentary WiFi and a large flat-panel television. The guestrooms provide … floor-to-ceiling windows offering awe-inspiring views of Las Cruces.”
Continuing, “An upgraded, more spacious layout creates an enhanced bathroom experience. A “Shower Nook” housing shampoos and towels, makes amenities accessible without having to leave the shower.
“The Courtyard by Marriott Las Cruces features the brand’s latest lobby design, where guests can enjoy an open and modern environment outside of their rooms. As an extension to Courtyard’s inviting public spaces, the newly designed Bistro is the epicenter of the lobby, which fosters social connections and collaboration with more flexible and informal seating options. As an ideal casual dining destination, the new Bistro offers guests a wide variety of fresh Classic American menu items with a contemporary twist. In the evening, the Bistro Bar also features an array of cocktails, beer and wine for guests.”
The Courtyard by Marriott Las Cruces and New Mexico State University have developed a partnership for Hotel Restaurant and Tourism Management students at the school. Hotel personnel, as well as staff of Total Management Systems will lecture in various classes throughout the school year and HRTM students will receive hands-on learning, and the opportunity to apply for internships and paid jobs at this property and all TMS properties.
